More Windows Information
Windows Server is the brand name for a collection of server operating systems released by Microsoft. The first server released under the Windows Server brand was Windows Server 2003, but Microsoft's first server edition of Windows was windows NT 3.1 Advanced Server.
While Linux has long been the go to server for most of the industry, recent Windows Server releases like 2012 R2 have allowed the operating system to be a viable alternative. Windows Servers are just as secure as Linux servers and offer Windows specific applications such as ASP Classic, ASP.NET, MSSQL (Microsoft SQL Server), MS Access (Microsoft Access), Visual Basic Development, C#, and Remote Desktop. Windows Servers can also get additional support from Microsoft for Windows applications and software.
Microsoft is bringing a wide range of improvements with the release of Windows Server 2016 including, but not limited to, improvements in security, virtualization, networking and storage. Windows Server 2016 makes it clear that Microsoft is changing its server strategy and focusing on cloud and hybrid servers. This is especially important for larger businesses who may look to move away from GUI on servers and use Windows Server 2016's containers and cloud style management.
